The National Art Fair Foundation aims for constant renewal and professionalization in order to progress to the next phase in the development of the National Art Fair (NK) within the Surinamese art scene. This year a special exhibition will be set up by a curator with a ‘curatorial thesis’. The curator for 2010 is Patrick Tjon Jaw Chong and the theme of the exhibit is ‘Green’.
The organization is also working towards a well functioning artist café: a gathering spot for artists to meet with one another and with the public.
The educational program, which is geared towards high school students, consists of, among other things, the Kijkwijzer, a helpful booklet which can be used by teachers to prepare their students for a visit to the NK.
Readytex Art Gallery will be present with art by: Reinier Asmoredjo, Kenneth Flijders, Ron Flu, Rinaldo Klas, Marcel Pinas, Wilgo Vijfhoven, Fineke van der Veen, Dhiradj Ramsamoedj and Henry Kartotaroeno (Soeka).
Some individual RAG-artists will have their own booth: John Lie A Fo, René Tosari, Kurt Nahar, Kit-ling Tjon Pian Gi, Sri Irodikromo, Roddney Tjon Poen Gie, Sunil Puljhun, Humphrey Tawjoeram and Hanka Wolterstorff.
